The former hat shop has been converted for the life of a single or a young couple. It has a bedroom with a hatch in the floor and a separate floor for washing.
The narrowest house in the British capital was put up for sale for £ 950 thousand (1 million euros).
Built at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, the house is located in London’s Shepherd’s Bush. Initially, the building housed a hat shop, upstairs there were living rooms. The building is only 5.5 feet wide, or just over 1.6 meters, and the living area is 96 “squares”. The house is literally squeezed between two other buildings and stands out against their background only in the blue color of the facade.
Now in the basement there is a kitchen and a dining area, on the first there is an entrance group, on the second there is a bedroom, an office and a terrace. The third floor is occupied by a bathroom with a bath and shower, on the fourth there is another bedroom with a double bed in full width. You can climb from the second floor to the third through a spiral staircase, and to the upper bedroom through a hatch in the floor.
The house is worth the money, Dawn quotes the words of David Myers, the realtor of the Winkworth company, which is selling the object. The realtor notes the historical value of the property. An unusual lot is suitable for one person or a young couple, Myers said.
In the description of the object on the website of the real estate agency, it is noted that the space of a narrow house is organized no less comfortably than on an expensive yacht. Advantages of the property include antique parquet flooring, original bathroom decor, quality engineering, a private patio and a private roof terrace.
According to Knight Frank statistics, in 2020, against the backdrop of the pandemic, there was a twofold drop in demand for housing in London. In the spring and summer, a record price decline was also recorded in the local market.
